Handel, Lully on David's psalms 

Dixit Dominus, Miserere, De Profondis

Sacred music was flourishing during the reign of Louis XIV. Dance and music were some of his greatest passions.

This concert allows you to hear all the splendor of the most fastuous French baroque music composed by the preferred composer of the Sun King: Lully.

The orchestra will accompany the "Big choir," who answers to the "Small choir", composed of soloist singers. Sung in Latin, these motets are prayers: "Miserere Mei Deus," Dies Irae," and "De Profundis."

Vivaldi-Gloria and Magnificat

Vivaldi’s Gloria and Magnificat are two of his most famous pieces. They involve choir, soloists, singers and orchestra.

Vivaldi’s Gloria is a joyful hymn of praise and worship focusing on the glory of God. 

The Magnificat contains the words spoken by the Virgin Mary, who is expecting Our Lord, to her cousin Elizabeth during a visit. The words are powerful, yet humble. The music is inspiring and full of joy.

Listening and reflecting on both pieces will bring you happiness.

Joseph Haydn-The Creation


The Creation by Joseph Haydn is considered one of the masterpieces of classical music.

Sung in German, the singers represent the voices of five characters: Archangel Gabriel, Archangel Raphael, Archangel Uriel, and Adam and Eve. Their songs present the story of the first six days God spent creating the whole world. And what he finally advised to the first man and woman, as to stay in happiness for ever… 

Mozart / Fauré - Requiem

Mozart’s Requiem is one of the most widely known classical pieces from the 18th century.

Come hear this version, full of contrasts, played in an early music style, closer to what Mozart would have expected, for this masterpiece to be displayed.

We'll also play the french Gabriel Fauré's requiem which is an ultimate musical delight, full of contrasts and so soul lifting. An emblematic testimony of what does the refinement and good tase of the french music from the XXth century !
